Key Doctrines of the Faith: Christology

by David Chadwick

More and more, we are finding ourselves in days where the bride of Christ must be equipped with truths to stand in the midst of a depraved and declining culture. There are many key doctrines of the faith that we must know.

Today we will look at Christology. The doctrine of Jesus.

Jesus is the second person of the Godhead. You see this hint in Genesis 1 when God said, “Let us create man in our image.” Notice the plural references. God does not say, “Let me create man in my image.” He says, “us” and “our” implying a communal and plural nature of the Godhead in one God in three persons, a doctrine we know as the Trinity.

The angels don’t create. So, God must be talking about the plurality of the Godhead.

Read Colossians 1:15-20. It is so powerful. Jesus is clearly not a creature. He is “the image of the invisible God.” He is “the head of the body, the church.” Jesus Christ is the Creator of the world. Verse 16 says that “in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth.” These truths should fill our hearts with awe and wonder.

We see this again in the prologue to John. John 1:1-3 and John 1:14 speak to the doctrine of Jesus. The Word (the logic/mind of God) became flesh and dwelt among us. We will dig deeper into this next week with the doctrine of the Incarnation. Stay tuned!

For now, I invite you to fix your eyes on Jesus. Worship him. Respect him. Praise him.

The doctrine of Christ should provoke us to live our lives with an eternal mindset. And one committed to glorify and serve him every day of our lives.

Belief must always translate to behavior. If it doesn't, do we really believe it?
